  1. That makes sense. So what's to stop you (or anyone interested) from fine tuning via opacity slider to get the same effect?
  2. Had to try out this drop site..... If you can't figure it out, here is a quick way to add bevel and lighting effects in PDN. This file will be deleted in 30 days: Bevel_ Light.mp4 ( 1.4 MB ScreenCast video)
  3. Yes, I will do that next time I need to post a file. I use Imgur for pictures and like it because I don't need to create an account. Any good file posting sites similar to Imgur where I don't need an account?
  4. Well what do ya know, someone went and deleted some of my attachments for me. Thanks... Here is the svg file I made. you'll need to create the beveled and lighting effects yourself. Being an svg, you can make it any size you want. Life_Hearts.svg.zip
  5. That would be great if I had a trash icon in my edit mode.
  6. Yes, I can delete the pictures, but the attachments remain un-deleted.
  7. There is a link to "Manage Attachments" to free up space, but it just takes me to the page I posted. No option to delete attachments.
  8. Please show me where there is a delete button to delete my attachments.
  9. Apparently I've reached the 10 MB limit with attachments. I don't see any way to delete them in my settings. I can't upload the zipped 15 kb svg file. Perhaps a moderator can delete all my attachments to free up space?
  10. I made an .svg file for this template, but can't seem to figure out how to upload it...
  11. Too lazy to make my own, so I used your image and saved it as a pattern. Thanks for this....
  12. Sorry Drydareelin, but you obviously have no clue about Gimp's capabilities.....
  13. Or simple use a "Windows" VM and install the latest PDN in that. Since I've upgraded to Linux Mint 19 (Ubunto 18.04 Bionic Beaver), I've decided to stop playing with Wine as I'm tired of fixing it.
  14. I've been using PDN since v3x and Gimp since v2.8x. PDN is a very good free image editor and is more than enough for most ordinary image editing users. For the "Advanced User", Gimp is a better choice with Masks, Groups and paths, not to mention more advanced plugins. Still, PDN certainly can produce excellent results when properly used. I often suggest PDN to Windows users, because it works so well.
  15. I was thinking of posting a video, but it's a pain posting videos on this site. Glad you posted one instead, Pixey. I was a bit disappointed though, you had your mic turned on but never spoke. I was curious what you sound like...
  16. 1) import gif using Midora's Plugin. (rename extension to .agif) 2) upsize canvas. 3) Add background and combine by using this command in layer properties: // background 4) Export to animated gif.
  17. There is an alternative way to dodge/burn in order to darken or lighten parts of an image. 1) Add a blank layer above background layer and set Blending Mode to "Overlay". 2) Use the brush to paint on the overlay layer. Black to darken and White to lighten. 3) Adjust opacity to suit...
  18. You did a great job on your animation tome10. Well done with just PDN.... For these type of things, I like to use Blender. More options and better quality. Here's something I made just a couple of days ago. Not too bad for just started learning two weeks ago.
  19. Yeah, your'e cool, to each their own. Your version yields great results. I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality of all your tuts. Just saying... I've been playing around with various glass effects today. I used a custom shape ( I believe it was one of Lydia's?) and desided to make a Crystal Ball effect animation out of it...
  20. Great job MJW, Welsh and Madjik. Congrats on your place finishes. Nice job hosting Lynxter.
  21. Perhaps you maybe interested in doing the effect in G'mic Online? Use the "Artist" > "Brushify" filter.
  22. Another cool use for glass text is for special effects, like this glass font lava lamp I made...
